Exeter City’s friendly against Cardiff City this evening will be unaffected by the fire at St Sidwell Street, Exeter.
There are plenty alternative routes to St James Park should the roundabout off St Sidwell Street stay closed this evening. We would urge fans travelling to the game to keep up to date with the traffic information given out by police and the club and give themselves extra time to get to the ground if necessary.

Exeter City Football Club says the development of St James Park has been given the go ahead by the Secretary of State.
Plans to replace the ageing Stagecoach Family Stand had been put on hold.
But the club's crumbling grandstand will now be re-built along with a huge block of student flats.
The 1,600 seater Stagecoach stand will be replaced. The rebuild will be paid for by a new tower block for 312 students overlooking the ground.
It is thought the Secretary of State was asked to intervene by the St James' Neighbourhood Forum which was concerned at the number of student flats in a neighbourhood in which students already make up 55 per cent of residents.
Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale has been nominated for the Sky Bet League 2 Manager of the Month award for March.
City remained unbeaten throughout the month, and a haul of twelve points from six games was made even more special by a 100% record on the road, with wins at Cambridge United, Notts County and Crawley Town.
This is the second time that Tisdale has been nominated for Manager of the Month this season, and coincides with an unbeaten run stretching back to the victory over Stevenage on February 27th.
Bristol Rovers’ Darrell Clarke, Hartlepool United’s Craig Hignett and Yeovil Town’s Darren Way are the other managers in contention.
The winners will be announced on Friday 8th April.

The multi-million pound development of Exeter City's St James' Park stadium has suffered a setback, after the Communities Secretary put a temporary holding order on the scheme.
The development would see the ageing grandstand replaced paid for by new student accommodation on site.
The rebuild would be paid for by a new tower block for over 300 students overlooking the ground.
It has won planning permission but a neighbourhood group is concerned about the number of students in the area. The scheme can't go ahead until the Government has investigated.
We have been made aware that the St James Forum have approached the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) asking the Secretary of State to intervene in the planning process for our Stadium Improvements.
The effect of this action is to stop the City Council confirming our Planning Permission until it has been decided whether the DCLG will take over the responsibility for the decision. We expect to hear within approximately three weeks whether or not this is going to happen.
Play was halted early on at Exeter City after fire alarms were triggered.
